WASHINGTON — The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) has opened the application for public policy internships for the fall 2023 semester. This internship program is conducted in conjunction with the Public Lands Council (PLC) and offers interns an opportunity to support the advocacy work of NCBA and PLC in Washington, D.C.
“This is a unique internship experience for students who are interested in learning how NCBA and PLC represent livestock producers in our nation’s capital,” said NCBA and PLC Associate Director of Operations Justyn Tedder, manager of the internship program. “Interns work directly alongside NCBA and PLC staff to advocate for producers, attend meetings on Capitol Hill, communicate updates to our members, and conduct research to further our policy priorities. Interns become a part of our team and many of our past interns have gone on to successful careers in the beef industry or government.”
Interns will have the opportunity to engage with NCBA and PLC staff on several fronts including policy, communications, and membership, and will work closely with the lobbying and regulatory teams to advance policies important to the beef and sheep industries. Duties may include participating in lobbying efforts, reviewing Federal Register notices, participating in meetings with government agencies, collaborating with congressional and agency staff, and performing other duties as assigned.
Successful applicants have a minimum GPA of 3.0, be available for the duration of the internship (September 2023 – December 2023) in Washington, D.C., and have excellent research, writing, and communication skills. Applications are available on NCBA’s website and are due by Friday, March 24, 2023. Questions about the internship program may be directed to Justyn Tedder (email@example.com).
